Monotonous Existence

Where did we get this idea of an ultimate source from?

Our Pagan and Animalist ancestors didn’t seem too bowed under the weight of this concept of everything eventually proceeding from one singular point – but today, we’re riddled with it.

The most common religious expressions assume One God.

The Universe is believed very strongly by the majority of scientists to have arisen in a Singularity – an occurrence of such uniqueness that the conditions before it can never be reconciled with the conditions after it.

Many NeoPagans today even acknowledge a single power, the emanations of whom form the basis for all that is, religiospiritually speaking.

This pervasive idea seems to have crept in and taken root while we weren’t looking.

All of my Pagan life, I have never had any experiences which led me to believe that there was one, ultimate, all-powerful root of All That Is.

Not even experiencing the ground of all being could I consider such a base point -it’s merely the ground point for my personal level, so to speak.

I have always seen Creation as a more eternal item (and then there’s that word – item rather suggests ‘one of’, doesn’t it?).Never ending, never beginning.
Made by a whole host of Us-some of whom are registered deities, some merely human, and some, a small but growing number, humans who know they are deities, too.

I don’t believe that there ever was a Beginning, no matter what the accepted scientific wisdom says today. Every fibre of my consciousness insists that we are cyclical in nature. We come, we go. We make and shape and disassemble and make anew.

This is in close accordance with the most ancient cosmologies known to mankind, apparently.The Hindu sacred texts announce that we are in existence in the wink of Brahma’s eye, as He sleeps and dreams the cosmos into being.
When he awakes,we will be dissolved and another cosmos generated. For ever and ever.

Worlds without end.

It’s a big thought for my limited brain.I think I’ll start with something smaller.

For example, Carl Sagan’s lovely summation of existence:

These are some of the things hydrogen atoms do, given 15 billion years of cosmic evolution.

Think, and create, and think some more, and fall asleep to dream another universe into Being.

  1. I love your recent science-inspired posts. I’ve always seen it a lot like waves on the beach. When they break, individua drops of water fling up into the air. Then, those drops fall back into the ocean and become part of the all, to be thrown back up in remixed drops. Over and over and over. It’s fun!

  2. “The most common religious expressions assume One God.”I know. But there are now almost seven billion of them on this planet. And a lot of them are brainwashed, this is a problem because they think some bogeyman god in the sky will fix it all.Interesting. So, other than that how are things going?

  3. Yes, thanks for the sea analogy Hecate- it works, although it’s not entirely what I was wrestling with yesterday. I was having visions of a whole lot of complete and individual beings with no connection to any source. Bit of a nightmare. We know however that our connections with the universe exist, the only questions are how deep and how wide are these connections?The sea, maybe. Perhaps a net is closer to what was giving me indigestion.Billy:Things are going well thank you, except that since yetserday morning I am almost totally deaf.Probably an infection, I’ll sort it out over the weekend.Meanwhile, being wrapped in a cocoon of near-silence is giving me an interesting new perspective on things.Love,Terri

  4. I believe that there was a bigging. Everything has to have a bigging or it would never exist.And I’m sure that beginning began with just one cosmic particle. I’ve posted about that before. I’m sure they will never figure out how that first particle formed, and it doesn’t matter.The Hindu’s sure think some weird things.I have a tendon giving me a bit of a fit but it’s not too bad. I hope the hearing is getting better. Hugs

  5. China and Russia put the blame on some screwed up experiments of US for the earthquake that happened in Haiti.Chinese and Russian Military scientists, these reports say, are concurring with Canadian researcher, and former Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief of Forbes Magazine, Benjamin Fulford, who in a very disturbing video released from his Japanese offices to the American public, details how the United States attacked China by the firing of a 90 Million Volt Shockwave from the Americans High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facilities in AlaskaIf we can recollect a previous news when US blamed Russia for the earthquake in Georgio. What do you guys think? Is it really possible to create an earthquake by humans?I came across this [url=http://universalages.com/hot-news/what-happened-in-haiti-is-it-related-to-haarp/]article about Haiti Earthquake[/url] in some blog it seems very interesting, but conspiracy theories have always been there.

  15. 5.) However, if you are playing very large jackpot games, it is better to play with fewer cards. Huge jackpots attract numerous players and your winning odds are low. Hence, you can make your money last longer by playing few cards. [url=http://www.bingokisses.com]bingo online[/url] play bingo One of the winning systems is to play with fewer bingo cards. Most bingo players play with many bingo cards to increase their chances of a win at the game. However, playing with fewer cards provides the best odds of the game as your chances of making a big win are higher. Another bingo system in action functions according to the theory of probability. Balls from a bingo machine come out at random, which means that no one can predict emergence of any particular number. In the same vein, you can employ the probability theory to gauge the next number to emerge from the machine. Random drawing of numbers means laws of probability govern selection of balls and their appearance in a uniform distribution pattern. [url=http://www.bingokisses.com]bingos[/url]With so many different casino and gaming sites on the Internet, it is difficult to know which ones are legitimate and which ones are not. After all, if you want to join the gaming community, you have to decide whether you want to play for money or for fun and prizes. If the former, it is more pertinent to find out what sites are legitimate since you do not want to invest cash into something that is not going to give you a return on your investment. bingo online Your aim would be to cover the prescribed pattern with the bingo letters, by coordinating the letters and numbers called. The patterns can be anything like, u shape, t shape, etc, though it usually is horizontal or vertical. As soon as you get the pattern, you should shout bingo and you get the prize. In case there are others who shouted at the same time as you, the prize will be shared among all winners.
